Ther verdict is in.
Probably celiac and possibly Crohn's disease.
I am foregoing the endoscopy and heading straight for colonoscopy.
Giving up gluten forever is gonna be tricky, but it is doable and I have accepted that.
Crohn's, on the other hand, scares the bejeezus out of me.
Crohn's is chronic inflammation of the intestines~ triggered by what no one is sure of.
There is a genetic link between it and celiac and some people are lucky enough to get both.
I am very anti-medication so if it is Crohn's I have a lot to think about.
Some people successfully treat flares naturally.
On one hand, I hope that is what it is.
So, I know what is wrong.
Is it horrible that the first thing I thought of when he told me I needed it was "how are we going to pay for this?"
I think the biggest part I miss of Honeyman's old job was no deductible.
Just a copay.
Outpatient surgeries were a $10 copay to the surgeon.
Now, it's a higher copay with deductible and 80/20 after that.
Which is normal.
I was spoiled.
But, Honeyman says we will figure it out.
When, I figured the taxes the other day, I thought we made less so we obviously won't owe as much.
I don't know what fantasy land I was living in.
I know that is off topic, but the whole money thing made me think it.
What is my take away from all this?
Foods hate me.
I don't know why.
I never did a thing to them.
